Soap And Glory One Heck Of A Blot | One Heck Of A Primer

Some people say primers are a bit of a gimmick and not worth investing in at all but I completely  disagree. In terms of giving a lovely base and correcting and minimising pore size I would say a decent primer is a must!

Normally I tend to opt for very glowy primers as I like a very illuminated complexion but I saw this sat at the Soap And Glory counter at Boots and the packaging charmed me and so I though I would pick it up and boy I am glad I did....

Mini Egg Easter Cake | Having A Lazy Easter

At Easter it has become somewhat of a tradition for me to either cook an epic Easter roast or bake a centre piece cake. This year I opted for the cake and I decided to recreate a recipe I saw on the Waitrose website. The cake is basically 3 layers of vanilla sponge with a soft and fluffy white chocolate buttercream, then to finish Cadbury's Mini Egg's scattered on top.

This cake is not calorie conscious or for the faint hearted, it is sweet and rich and believe me one slice is ample enough to make your tasted buds dance and sing.

So if you're like me and you fancy a little Easter baking today- here is the recipe and method I used, it's super easy and the result is quite amazing.

By Terry Cover-Expert Perfecting Fluid Foundation | A Complexion As Flawless As Fresh Milk

By Terry is normally a brand that is a little out of my price bracket, unless of course I have a special occasion or I am treating myself. I have been lucky enough to try a few of their launches but each time I go to purchase I get palpitations and sometimes I find it hard to believe how much i have just paid for something that has a shelf life.

Although their prices could lead you to having to remortgage your house (joke) you can rest in the comfort of knowing you have purchased quality. I think sometimes especially us bloggers you can get swept away with the hype of a product and purchase something on a whim that's very much a impulse buy. To quote a subscriber who recently left me a comment on one of my videos "if you buy what you love you will never regret" I think in this case those are wise words.

Magic Organic Apothecary Skincare Range

I love skincare I like to use it as my me time,  a time to relax and indulge in a bit of pampering. I recently came across a new brand which I have become particularly fond of, it was also completely by chance. I was sent my monthly Love Me Beauty Box (which is a monthly subscription service) and if you want a discount use my code natasha50.

In my package came the MOA Fortifying Green Bath Potion. It really did come to me in my hour of need as it was winter time and I had a nasty chest infection even antibiotics struggled to shift. I felt wretched, I couldn't taste and had no sense of smell, it almost wrecked my Christmas. On Boxing Day I decided to have a bath and remembered I had this bath oil, I was in no way prepared to be as blown away as I was.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector | Champagne Pop & Moonstone

So when it comes to the highlight game I feel like I got this stuff down. Along with foundation highlighters are my favourite beauty product to play with hands down.

I love all different types and textures, I love warm tones,cool tones,cream finish powder finish. And I look for a few things, how natural it looks (I don't want to look like a glitter ball) and how long it lasts.
I have been so lucky to have tried so many that are out there Drugstore and High end but I have to say I have found the cats pyjamas when it comes to highlights & for a whole bunch of different reasons...So let's get into it.
